I'm starting to understand why the U.S. is tring to con other nations
First Step: Implement a patent system which allows the patenting of
obvious and trivial 'inventions', including software patents, business
Second Step: Prod your citizens and corporations to patent virtually
everything, even the most straightforward and trivial algorithms,
patent things which were invented previously and allow the eternal
extension of the patent's duration by so-called Patent Extensions where
trivial improvements are made to a patent, but will make it impossible
for anyone to take use the invention in the expired patent because
there's hardly any difference between it and the Extended Patent.
Third Step: Force other nations through secret negotiations to accept
you 'Everything's Patentable' patent system (i.e. ACTA).
Fourth Step: Since U.S. companies and individuals have patented
everything under the Sun, start litigation in countries which were
stupid enough to adopt the U.S's patent system and start raking in
money without ever having to lift a finger. Start threatening with
trade sanctions against countries that did not adapt the Trivial
Patenting scheme, accusing them of 'Intellecual Property Infringement.'
It all makes sense now! The U.S. is a nation of con-artists!!!
